ØSTFOLD UNIVERSITY COLLEGE

Bachelor in acting

The aim of the programme is to train performers who can portray characters through conscious use of body, voice and movement, work with objects and take part in complex directed visual compositions and create independenet transdisiplinary work. The acting course trains performers to work independently on theatre productions and to interpret roles or role functions in productions directed by directors, choreographers or other artists. Collaboration with the scenography students is an important part of the course. The target group consists of young people from Norway and abroad with an interest in the arts and the theatre who wish to complete a Bachelor degree in Acting. Previous ex­perience of theatre and performance is normally considered an advantage, but it is not a precondition for applying.

Formal prerequisites The Norwegian Theatre Academy is exempted from the standard Norwegian university entrance requirements. Separate guidelines have been prepared for entrance proce­dures. The criterion for acceptance is artistic talent, and this is assessed in artistic entrance auditions. Anyone can apply to take the entrance audition. Because of the international profile of the academy there are no requirements for Norwegian language skills. It is, however, expected that non-Scandinavian students acquire an understanding of Norwegian during their course of studies.
